  1. Mmmm..... https://asia.nikkei.com/Spotlight/Coronavirus/How-Singapore-fights-COVID-with-contact-tracing-5-things-to-know https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00264-020-04646-2 SGP, South Korea and Japan had / have the most efficient tracing system. At the cost of losing completely any privacy ..... "One aspect of this is SafeEntry, a system for checking in and out of offices, shopping malls, cinemas and other places. Individuals are required to use their mobile phones to scan QR codes and enter some personal information. This way, they can be alerted if an active carrier happened to be in the same spot at the same time. This is combined with the TraceTogether program, which uses a smartphone application or portable electronic tokens to track close encounters between people using Bluetooth wireless technology." "Nonetheless, contact tracing is expectedly time consuming, laborious and with possible recall bias, especially if patients are unwell. Digital technology has come to aid in several ways. One technique that the authorities in Singapore are using is the examination of patient’s digital footprint [12]. ATM withdrawals and credit card activities, such as through ridesharing applications, credit card payments at restaurants or shopping centres, movement on public transportation, leave digital footprints and these can assist the authorities in finding out where the person has been and how they have travelled" Well, you guessed my position already....f**k that.
  2. Yep, but a rookie compared to the W.H. idiot...
  3. Hahaha... Still dreaming and drinking the Thai cool aid ? Seeing the light at last ......
  4. A bit troubled by that part. I mean the idea of moving patients to hospitals in low Covid areas is to free beds and equipment in the originating hospital in the "red" areas. But if you move the staff and equipment together with the patient, you simply reduce the capacity of the originating hospital. Doesn't make sense to me, or is there something that escapes me ? Technical question, technical answers only plse...
  5. No keyboard warrior at all mate. But this Covid thing is an interestic social event, in the sense that the human reaction / social part is way more fascinating than the disease itself. The disease is just that, and a cure will be found or not. The world has survived 1000's of diseases, it will survive that one. Of course,.like every disease it wiln claim victims. But so does tobacco, alcohol and drugs without even being diseases .... I follow France, UK, Belgium. Why ? Because it are 3 countries where reliable data is publicly available in languages that I master, and where I can read the papers. I could add Germany but my German language skills are very rusty. I tried to check for the US, but it is very difficult to find data at country level, its mostly by state. And besides that, after all the shiite we seen there during the elections, I much doubt about their data . I am indeed retired, and have a bit of time available. Some spend it on watching dart games, or snooker...well to each his own. But rest reassured, Covid doesn't take more than an hour a day to stay updated. My stock market stuff 2 or 3. The rest of my hours as you all know I spend drinking gallons of Bintang. OK, off to the morning swim !
  6. Probably still has a hang over following the celebration of that fantastic Brexit victory ?
  7. Bloody hell, not surprising them British fishermen are upset ! Brits eating fish from Norway instead of British fish, caught in British waters, by British trawlers . Complete lack of patriotisme ...πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜
  8. Voila, that is what I call a proper answer !
  9. Nobody seen this ? https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/thailand-clears-use-of-herbal-medicine-for-covid-19-treatment BANGKOK (BLOOMBERG) - Thailand's health ministry approved the use of a herbal plant extract to treat early stages of Covid-19 as a pilot programme amid a flare-up in the coronavirus outbreak in the South-east Asian nation. Andrographis paniculata, commonly known as green chiretta, will serve as an alternative treatment to reduce the severity of the outbreak and cut treatment costs, the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday (Dec 30). The treatment will be available in five state-owned hospitals initially, it said.
  10. Well, ask a simple technical question, nobody answers.... Say ONE thing about mask or vaccine, you have 10 answers barking ... FFS !
  11. So, tell me, having tested those magic vacines only 6 months, and the world having only 9 month experience / knowledge of C19 how can any of those big pharma boys GUARANTEE what is the duration.of this vacine protection ? Because if one says it's one year, it means they have done trials with follow up over a year ? So, mathematically the vacines having being approved 1.or 2 months ago how can anybody guarantee the duration of their efectiveness ? Not my words, plse refer to the study by The Lancet that I posted a few hours ago ....
  12. Yes, but it's a pain when somebody drags it in a technical discussion.
  13. What I dont understand in the UK, why when an hospital arrives at saturation they dont dispatch patients to hospitals in areas which are less touched by the virus ? We did it during the 1st wave (medical trains and Air Force planes) , Belgium did it (they have send patients to Germany, and Germany is doing it now as well. It's not like every region is hit at 100% ? Any answer ? (Without involving Macron or the EU plse ....)
  14. Off to the dentist... 3rd time in two weeks. - infection cut open - theeth cleaning (with that little grinder..) - today 2 theeths filling Miss also needs a few things done. Local dentist (husband and wife) overseas educated, perfect English, but of course not cheap. Receives you dressed in full Hazzmat gear. And applies a special "Covid PPE charge" for the disposable PPE he uses and changes at every patient. Good man must use good quality stuff, the charge is 350 b / person ...
  15. Meanwhile in BKK very logic rules. Soi 4 open, Nana plaza gogos closed, Soi Cowboy gogos open ... https://www.stickboybkk.com/news/soi-4-beer-bars-open/ https://www.stickboybkk.com/news/soi-cowboy-gets-the-green-light-to-open-until-midnight/
